any of the crappy cheap RTL-SDR type dongles will work as a receiver.
it's the software you'll need to set up to work for digital.
SDR-Sharp you can add add-ons for Tetra although i never got it to work.
DSD+ will do DMR, Fusion and Dstar in HDSDR.

me i just use a basic realistic scanner with discriminator tap and DSD+

i've had this tetra decoder working with sdr#, though i used an airspy R2 rather than an rtl-sdr.
